Factual error: In the opening scenes of the film, the audience finds that Tom Hollander has warrants for the arrests of Orlando Bloom and Keira Knightley for a number of charges, one of which in conspiracy.

Mistakes

There are six metal bars mounted around the circumference of the water wheel's axle. In the wheel's interior, when Jack frees himself he lands on his feet, begins to run and promptly hits his head on one of those axle bars, then falls out. Moments later, when Jack returns and runs in the wheel, he is shorter (way more than a foot) than all six spinning axle bars, which would make that previous shot impossible, however humorous it is.
